if something like what the fbi did and had a director position that was appointed for fixed 10 year terms would be above the political fray. also critically important for jurisdictions to have access to crime gun information. you want to publish as they did before national crime gun tracing report with city level analyses of crime. it was very important have academic involvement in those, the production of those reports, some of the special analyses. and i can't say that enough. the magic between having actual investigators with detailed knowledge about criminal enterprises operate collaborating with academics, but the ability to bring an outside eye, analytic tools, and an unbiased perspective of what's going on, the knowledge that is greater. so clearly we establishing that and also some of the reforms, tiahrt amendment, allowing cdc and in that age to fund a gun research and maybe expanding funding for research would be important as well. so if we're able to, some of these, it would be great to do all these policy recommendations, i think a lot of the obstacles necessary for effective invest

, the fbi conducted a record 2.8 million checks for gun purchases, a record for a single month. in other words, a lot of americans reacted to the horror of that terrible day by rushing out to buy a gun. since that day, and unlike after past shootings, the old debate over gun rights who should buy them and what kind that they can guy has only gotten more intense. vice president joe biden on tuesday will present the president with his task force's recommendation for reducing gun violence. mental health, violent video games and school safety have all been a part of his agenda. he even met with the n.r.a. but the group said it was, quote, disappointed in their discussion. that discussion is stirring passion from dinner tables to talk shows nationwide in ways we haven't seen in a very long time. here's our own piers morgan with a radio host who started a petition to get piers deported over support for gun control. >> the tyrants did it. hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. castro took the guns. chavez took the guns. 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. doesn't matt

me describe the scene inside the apartment. the fbi bomb technician said, there was a fishing line strung across the apartment at a level of about five feet. clearly intended for someone to walk into. it was attached to to a container of glycerin which was up on a shelf above a frying pan that had another material in it. and the idea was for the glycerin to mix with that other material and explode. also in the apartment, napalm, the floor was soaked with gasoline. there were canisters on the floor of some other type of explosive materials. and now it gets -- if that's not enough, it gets more bizarre. outside of the apartment, there was a boom box playing music. next to it, a remote control car that was also intended apparently for someone to go look at the music, maybe play with the remote control car, that would have also set off the explosion. given all of this planning, i think they're trying to show premeditation. also, there was evidence presented yesterday in the afternoon about him buying his ticket. he purchased his ticket online 12 days before the shooting. there was vide

of troubled adolescents or young men, in my experience, with these kind of cases and in my research as an fbi profiler, i have found that there is no the a cause and effect. they did not cause violence but for these young people who were already contemplating carrying out acts of violence or acting out towards others in a violent way, these videos and very violent websites and violent movies can actually fuel what's already there. it can help them desensitize to acting out violently. it helps them erode at their sense of empathy and compassion. it is for this small group of people considering acting out violently. >> request there is this group of disturbed people you were describing, if there weren't violent v violent video games, isn't there something else that might push them over the edge? >> i wouldn't suggest these videos are pushing them over the edge. we don't look at whether or not they are looking at violent videos. violent behavior is very complicated. we look at, for example, are they saturated in a world where all they do is consider violence. in the research we did in the bureau

as an fbi profiler, i found that there is not a cause and effect. they did not cause violence, but for the young people who are contemplating carrying out acts of violence or acting out towards others in a violent way. these videos and violent websites and violent movies can fuel what's already there and in doing that, it can help them desensitize to acting out violently and it erodes away at the sense of empathy and compassion and turns human beings into objects. it's for the small group of people already considering acting out violently. >> let me just push back on this to play devil's advocate. if there is a group of disturbed people that you are describing, isn't there something else that might push them over the edge as well? >> sure. i wouldn't suggest that these videos are pushing them over the edge. when we do a threat assessment on someone, we don't look at just whether or not they are looking at violent videos. violent behavior is complicated. we look at, for example, are they saturated in a world where all they do is consider violence? in the research they did in th
. what the fbi know if you havea gun, the atf to know. gerri: there is information i share with the government. i file a tax for every year, every financial detail of my life is in washington d.c. that dosn't mean they should be able to share that. >> that's privacy. that's not released. again,ou have to show what the harm is to somebody knowing i have a gun when th whole point of having a gun is to publicize the fact, stay away from the. >> i don't know that that's necessarily the point. >> you going to ambush somebody. no. >> that does not mean that every blic document is open and can be turned out to the public. there are exceptions,and i think in this case they made a wrong decision. gerri: another argument being made. and that's this. the newspapers, you ow what, they're trying to sell a few newspapers out there. th is publicity. they're getting a lot of attention. and sort of taking advantage. what you say? >> that's what newspapers do. they sell papers. is that illegal? now. is that an illegal use of open public recos. gerri: does it give your reason? >> what i say i
resistance he agreed to an fbi interrogation. no comment from the fbi on the substance of that. his lawyers say he was in libya at the time but he was on a construction job. sources say while he is freed he has to remain in the tunisian capital, tunis, he is still charged with suspected involvement after terror organization, joon. jon: he is the only suspect arrested where does that leave the u.s. in this >> reporter: the fbi confirmed to me they have an ongoing investigation and they have agents on the ground in lib a they can't say much more than that. by all accounts this probe is not much more advanced since we were in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another says no one has been charged and that all suspects remain on the loose. the problem it appears very little cooperation on the ground in libya. we saw it in benghazi. security remains a big issue. militias are still strong. they are doing attacking of people that should be doing the investigating. so you see the problems. one suspect was questioned in december in cairo with possible links, both to the atta
interviewed. there were clues in the fbi. the fbi did not talk to the cia. we came up with a model that fixed the pentagon. the pentagon used to have the services staffing and fighting separate wars. they would equip themselves separately. we decided to do what the military did. a joint command was created. he can come from any military service. they now trained and equipped to gather. -- togetherthe dni is the joint commander across 16 intel agencies. he leverage is their strength to produce intel products. that is the backbone of how we get intelligence to policy makers and that has dramatically improved. on the fusion centers, that is a different thing. those are local centers that have gone up to serve local law enforcement. they pull together national intelligence streams that they get from the homeland security department or the fbi with streams of local intelligence and a share it. the homelands department has tried to insist on privacy in these agencies and provide some financial support. this is a work in progress. some of them worked very well. one in los angeles works very well. ot

counterterrorism director, jeff porter, he has briefed the fbi on the situation, and chris lawrence. our pentagon correspondent. chris, let me start with you. the state department says we have to do the job right. the defense department says the united states will be involved in mali. what are you hearing tonight as far as u.s. intervention? >> they're narrowing down the option. piloted planes to gather some intelligence is one option. drones, although one official told me those are in very high demand with things going on in yemen and afghanistan, libya and other areas around the world. he said look for possibly some air lift capacity. in other words, big cargo planes that would allow the french to get more equipment to where it's needed in mali, and refueling capability. in other words, the french jets doing some of the bombing, these american refueling tankers could pull up alongside them, and the french jets could refuel in air so they could go longer and further without having to come back to a base. >> interesting options. they're so eager to say there won't be mass combat troops on the gro
's the fbi that has the executive order to lead the defense against cyber terrorism from foreign states, some private companies are looking for attacks on their own and consulting firms come in. >> this happens every day, when adversaries come in and steal everything. >> and what they fear is the intellect. weapons, to stealth bombers and computer chips, and secret recipes and feed the wrong information to the hackers, confusing them. >> you can really start to change the table and bring some pain to the them. >> the idea to prevent attacks like the one iran has believed to have sprung on banks. >> most of these attack from machines, users home machines compromised by viruses or other malicious code that's been downloaded from websites, that's a major problem, harris. the risk there, millions of machines in all of our homes could be used to strike against our own country, harris. >> harris: all right. thank you very much, good to see you. people in one town can expect an extra headache trying it get to work tomorrow. take a look at why. that's an overpass that came crashing down, very inconve
. it could mean a shut down at the fbi, prisons might have to stop operating, courts would, of course, close. it would mean chaos, but that seems to be what they want, i guess, chaos, which i guess they'll then somehow use as leverage. is that right? >> well, apparently that is their argument. i think the problem is we've seen this movie before. it happened under gingrich's watch when clinton was president. it certainly didn't rebound to gingrich's favor. it ended up helping clinton. his poll numbers went up, and i imagine that the same thing would happen with obama. and, of course, there would be this attendant impact on the economy and attendant impact on people getting their government benefits and all sorts of things. so, again, i think the republican party talks about refashioning and rebranding and i think one of the ideas is to look at reagan. they always talk about reagan, but if you look at some of the things reagan actually did around immigration reform, for instance, this isn't a party that so far is will to do that and embrace some of those parts of reagan's legacy. >> steve, we
ceiling. here's some of what would happen. the fbi would shut down, prisons won't operate, the court system closes, tax refunds won't go out, the faa would go off line. that's not even talking about what would happen in the financial markets, including the prospect of interest rates rising. do you feel comfortable -- >> but, chris, we've already addressed some of these things about making certain the interest is paid, making certain that we prioritize. you know, budgets are to be about priorities anyway. and i think that there is a way we're going to have to find a way forward, if you will, we're going to have to work through a way forward so that we pay all of our bills, so that we are able to meet what we have to meet as far as our needs go, and that we are reducing what the federal government spends. there's a lot of waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal spending system. everybody knows that. the time has come that everybody engage in this. the agencies, the bureaucracy, they've got to do their part on this. they just can't sit there and say, oh, you're cutting me because you're
a listen. >> i have fbi crime statistics that come out a year late, 2011, 20 plus percent crime drop in the last nine years, real violent crime because more guns means less crime. britain took the guns 15, 16 years ago, tripling of your overall violent crime. true we have a higher gun violence level, but overall muggings, stabbings, deaths, those men raped that woman in india to death with an iron rod four feet long. you can't ban the iron rods. the guns, the iron rods, piers, didn't do it. the tyrants did it. hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. mao took the guns. fidel castro took the guns. i'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! doesn't matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street, begging for them to have their guns taken. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? that's why you're going to fail and the establishment knows no matter how much propaganda the republican rhee public will rise again when you attempt to take our guns. my family and the texas revolution against santa ana, my family was at the core on both
to do things to make sure the database of the fbi has all of the information so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force on thursday but did not mention a new assault weapons ban stirring speculation that the white house is dropping the proposal but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think there's going to be a ban on assault weapons passed by the congress. >> the nra plans an aggressive campaign and can point to what happened in 1994 when president bill clinton signed the last assault weapons ban into law. democrats lost both houses of congress to republicans. >> these become the only republican candidate in indiana with an f rating from the nra. >> last year the nra proved it was willing to go after the gop as well, running this ad against dick lugar. t
that authorities say maicon taken human remains is a lot deeper than first thought. fbi agents are getting ready to dig up the well in the town of linden to look for more possible victims of the speed freak killers. yesterday agents determined the well is 200 feet deep. at first they thought it was 50 feet deep. special equipment reportedly will be brought into drain the well. that may take a few more days. >> happening now the cdc updating the flu season which is in full force. it's happening at a press conference in atlanta georgia and this as the cdc announced a shortage of the vaccine. that could be a problem since 20 children across the nation and two elderly people in california have died from the illness. between september and december more than 22,000 flu case was reported. the cdc said this season could be the worst in a decade. >> i have had asthma in the past and so i was high risk so i always got the flu shot. >> doctors say if you do get the flu shot it still takes two weeks for it to be effective. i have been meaning to get a shot but i don't have the time but i won't have time
